Bobby Brown is right: People definitely make mistakes, but airing his and Whitney Houston's dirty laundry might be one of them.

Access Hollywood will air an in-depth interview special with Brown on Saturday, immediately following the premiere of Houston's biopic, and according to E! News, the interview includes some dirty secrets.

One thing Brown isn't holding back about? Rumors of his and Houston's infidelity during their marriage, something both denied before the superstar singer's death in 2012.

"There was infidelity in the marriage, yes, on both parts," he said, according to E! News' report. "Both of us cheated on each other — period. So that's hard to swallow for both of us. I just think when two people that love each other as much as we loved each other, when they start drifting apart different people come into the situation, into the scenario, and we make mistakes."

Brown, who had a daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown, now 21, with Houston, continued, "People make mistakes. We're human."

Is it just us, or is it kind of trashy of him to be airing all that dirty laundry after Houston's death? Considering how fiercely both of them battled the infidelity rumors while Houston was alive, it kind of feels like Brown is now dragging her name through the mud when she can't defend herself.

But according to director, Angela Bassett, the forthcoming Houston biopic puts a lot of focus on the singer's tumultuous life, including her rise to the top of the charts, her drug use and, of course, her relationship woes.

"I just want them to go on the journey between Whitney and Bobby. I considered it a love story... they were there to love and care for one another, and it was quite a journey," Bassett said. "I think we as fans, audience... those that looked on — we thought we had some say in it. We really didn't have any say in their love affair. They say all we have is ourselves and our capacity to love, to love ourselves, to love one another and to just spread more love and joy in this world."
